Flint and thatch... sparkling rivers and broads, rolling fields and meadows, Norfolk is far from flat... popular seaside resorts and harbours - and rich in local colour and dialect.

Membership Application Form / Annual Subscription Renewal

Annual Subscriptions

At the Annual General Meeting on 27 November 2016, the members present voted for new subscription rates as follows, to take effect from 1 April 2017 :

Individual members, 10 per year each
Family membership, including all members living at the same address, 15 per year.
One copy of The Merry Mawkin will be sent to each unique address, addressed to the alphabetically first-named member at the address and intended for all members residing at that address.

These new rates will help to stabilise FOND's financial position, and your co-operation is requested in paying your subscriptions promptly and at the correct rate.

Subscriptions are due annually on 1 April. Any member who has not yet paid for the year ending 31 March 2017 is very politely requested to do so. For next year, commencing 1 April 2017, and subsequent years, it would be very helpful if as many members as are able to do so would pay by Standing Order. This can be done directly through your bank, in person, by telephone or online, or by completing the form below and sending it to the Treasurer. Members who already pay by Standing Order are requested, please, to amend their order, by the same means.

SPECIAL OFFER. To encourage prompt payment, any member who wishes to pay in advance for the 2017-2018 year may pay at the existing rates provided that payment is received by 31 March.

Richard Reid, Hon. Treasurer.
